In an effort to cater to the rapidly-expanding mobile gaming market, ASUS’ Republic Of Gamers (or ROG) sub-label debuted its first gaming-specific smartphone model in June of 2018 — bestowing a 6” cellphone with an advanced, high-performance 2.96GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor that brought console-quality gaming to the mobile realm. Despite less than three years passing since the ROG Phone’s release, the Taiwanese tech outfit has now unveiled the fifth-generation version of its mobile gaming powerhouse with the ROG Phone 5.

Offering 25% faster CPU performance and a 35% quicker GPU, the ROG Phone 5 is equipped with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 888 5G chipset, a 6.78” (2,448 x 1,080) 144Hz AMOLED Samsung display with a 24.3ms touch latency, dual symmetrical 7-magnet front-facing hi-fi GameFX speakers, updated AirTrigger shoulder buttons, a pair of 3,000mAh batteries, a gaming-friendly side-mounted charging port, a 64MP wide-angle camera backed by Sony’s flagship IMX686 sensor, and up to 512GB of internal storage. Alongside the base model, ROG is also offering up-specced Pro and Ultimate versions of the phone that gain additional storage and RAM, plus a customizable LED RGB display on the back of the smartphone. Slated for a launch in Q2 of 2021, the ASUS ROG Phone 5 starts at approximately $950 and goes up to $1,545 for the Ultimate-spec.
